Susan Rooney MA, GGCP

You have the strength to change your life, and I can help. Humor, trust and honesty are very important to our relationship. I will listen without judgment and accept you as you are. Whether you are a senior, a stressed-out caretaker or a younger adult, I can help you make the changes you want.

My Approach

While I help people with many concerns, my counseling perspective has taken a focus on exploring the meaning of one's life, facing difficult loss and grief issues, including pets, release from the burden of anger and resentment, and nurturing the joyful potential of later life.

My Background

I have a Master's degree in Counseling, as well as a Graduate Certificate in Gerontology, which enables me to help you enjoy elderhood, as well as helping the stressed-out caretaker. I also offer in-home sessions for those that would rather be seen at home or sessions at my beautiful and conveniently located office in SW Portland.
